Chandler Limited

collapse expand iconDescription

The Chandler Limited RS660 tube compressor/limiter matched pair builds upon the technological advancements that began with the historic EMI RS124 and Fairchild 660 compressors used at EMI's Abbey Road Studios during the 1960s, and distills them into a refined and elegant compression circuit. Rather than a reproduction of existing equipment, the RS660 compressor stands apart and represents a path forward in the recording engineering development department. Capable of taming an array of dynamic sources from sensitive vocals to explosive drums, the RS660 compressor and limiter is at home alongside the historic units from which it was hewn and adds to the modern engineer's cache of analog signal processors.

Chandler Limited is the only company in the world authorized to develop, manufacture and market the "official equipment" of EMI/Abbey Road Studios.
